Twitter roasts AKA's defence of Bonang's book
Rapper AKA has defended his girlfriend Bonang Matheba from critics who lambasted her recent memoir Bonang: A to B, questioning why South Africa ridiculed her story while women were being abused and killed by their partners.
In an uncharacteristic move, after pledging to only post about his music and career on his Twitter account, AKA took to the social media site on Wednesday to comment about Bonang's battles.
A woman is killed by her partner, we cry about domestic abuse in this country. When Bonang tells her story in her book, we laugh at her.— AKA (@akaworldwide) September 5, 2017
AKA's comments come after Bonang's book once again made headlines over claims she made about an apparent abusive ex-boyfriend. It also comes one month after the book was pulled from shelves after receiving backlash for factual and grammatical errors.
While some applauded AKA for defending his lady, many ripped the rapper's tweet apart.
In true Mzansi fashion, they made their feelings known through jokes and memes.
